Abstract : Introduction: Bacillus cereus is a gram positive bacilli found commonly in the soil and environment. It is a bacteria rarely associated with endocarditis. Case History: Intravenous drug abuse, presence of valvular defects, pacemakers, immunodeficiency are some of the known risk factors for endocarditis. We present here a case series of two patients with endocarditis along with a review of the literature. Conclusion: This is the first report of endocarditis from India to the best of our knowledge.
